Help me spend my bonus!

So I got a $850 bonus today. Help me spend it on my stock 08 Black GT...looking for exterior mods and possibly some light performance/handling mods...

Damn where do you work? Just kidding, congrats!

Exterior Mods--- Wheels if you have the cheap ones with the Ford emblem on them. Shorty antenna-- really makes it look nicer. Tint if allowed in your state. Lugnuts--chrome not the cheapie alumunim covers ford uses. Rear deklid panel.

Performance mods-- Exhaust, Cold air intake and a tune-10-15 hp gain and not expensive. Under a $1,000. Gears at least 3.73's I would stay under 4.10's if not racing. Brakes-- Sloted and cross dirlled rotors, new brake lines -steel of course.

Re: Help me spend my bonus!

Priority's priority's.

1. Save for Supercharger/Turbo kit
2. Suspension
3. Wheels

My car with bullitt knock offs.




My car with gt500 knock offs.

Suspension...after having such a harsh ride with my setup. Id suggest you just get springs and shocks and dont go coil over unless you plan on tracking it.

Vortech supercharger or STS turbo you cant go wrong. Just save your money man. And go get the kit. If you know how to work on your cars you can install it in a day "vortech" I havent done an STS install but I can imagine it wouldn't be that hard anyways.

STS isn't too bad as long as u have all the pieces.... Sucks running all that piping the length of the car but definitely worth it
